Correction: Because in the old format, the peg revision defaults to the
operative (-r) revision, it's possible to refer to a URL that was
deleted in HEAD. But if a path was deleted and recreated multiple times,
only the most recent instance of it will be usable from svn:externals.
The new format can refer to any instance.
